Hey. I'm glad I discovered this forum because it should be of great help. I'm just starting up a music project as a little hobby while my band (I play guitar) are all at different universities in term time. It's not strictly dnb but the drums will be heavily dnb-based. I'm using Cubase SX3 at the moment because that's what I'm used to. Basically my question is how do most people achieve decent dnb drum sounds? I've been using some free drum VST instruments but they never seem to sound chunky enough. So I've been experimenting with samples from freesound.com etc and I think it sounds better, but it's so time consuming! Is there any way I can set up MIDI triggers to play the samples I find? For example I would program a kick rhythm as a MIDI and then assign a decent kick sample to that. Are there any decent tutorials for how to make drums sound good? Sorry for all the questions. My excuse is in the thread title.
